A few days more and the class of 1922 will be an organization of the 
past, separated forever. Before the disintegration, it is fitting that a brief 
history of its career be chronicled. Only in the fact that its span of college 
existence is the same, is the class of 1922 like any other class. In all other 
respects it differs, but especially in its greater achievement in setting higher 
standards for succeeding classes. 

When we were Juniors and even as underclassmen, although Seniors 
should have been moulding student opinions, our class had a powerful influ- 
ence in directing under-graduates. 

The Senior class has made its impression, and that a good and lasting 
one. Other classes have been influenced for the better and when we are 
individually gone and scattered to the cardinal points, the one consolation 
will remain, that our deeds will live after us. ennobling and inspiring other 
plodders along the vocational path.

CLASS OF 1922 




Secretary -Treasurer 

We, the Sophomores, entered upon our delightful and brilliant career at 
Stout in September 1920. We were the largest Freshman class that ever 
entered Stout and pride ourselves on being the first wearers of the "Green 
Caps. We were a handsome and interesting group of real college students, 
and even the upper-classmen envied our remarkable headgear. 

We held our first class meeting and election October 21, 1920, and 
thus began our career as an organized "Stout" class. 

Although we wore our Green Caps with pride, we never gave up until 
we had won from our upper classmen the privilege to lay them aside. In 
football luck was against us and we went down to defeat; in basketball we 
proved our superiority and won over the Sophs; again in baseball we subdued 
our upper classmen; but the spirit was highest and the battle fiercest as we 
pulled the Sophs through the stream of water, — thus earning the privilege to 
lay aside the Green Caps which became ancient history. 

Members of our class were prominent in all school activities and athletics 
and we were looked upon as "comers." 

The saddest moments of our career were when our admired classmate, 
Lawrence B. Larson, was drowned in the Lake. Four of our members accom- 
panied the body to the home of his parents at Murdock, Minnesota. 

In September 1921, a few days after returning from our pleasant vaca- 
tion previous to beginning our work as Sophomores, we re-elected our officers 
and were off for a busy year. 

Again we were "dry winners" in the tug-of-war and pulled the heirs of 
the Green Caps through the stream of water. In basketball we lost to the 
Freshmen after a close and hard battle. The Freshies have three more trials 
to lay aside the Green Caps "by right of purchase," but our price is high and 
we see no prospects of the possible buyer. 

As a chain is no stronger than its weakest link, we hope to strengthen 
the graduate line of teachers from Stout and make it possible for Stout to be 
proud of the "Class of 1922."

Since its inception in 1920. this organization has proved its worth by the 
spirit of co-operation and leadership developed in its members. A greater 
part of its policy is to promote movements in our school life which are worthy 
and along the line of live school spirit and better morale. In promoting these 
aims its members have received their rewards; personal satisfaction, the pleas- 
ure of service for others, and the confidence of those about them. 

Every member is obligated to practice the spirit of democracy, fair- 
dealing, and co-operation. They can always be relied upon to do that which 
is for the best interests of the student body. Whatever is done within the 
organization has for its purpose the development of higher standards 
The members must be prepared for service in activities of the school; thus 
finding themselves when entering their professional career, better equipped 
for the demands of their positions.

Ol)£ 4^b^omatbean Citcrarj Society 

The Philomathean Literary Society was re-organized during the fall of 
1920. The purpose is expressed in the word "Philomathean" which means 
"A love for higher learning." We are thus recognized by the standard Philo- 
mathean pin. 

As befits our name, the candidate for membership, as well as members, 
must have school standings above the average. Each Philo girl has the privilege 
of asking one student of the Home Economics Department if she desires to 
become a member. If so, then the candidate writes to the society express- 
ing her wish. Because our membership is limited to a number of thirty in 
order to make activity possible for all, the number to be elected is chosen 
from this group of candidates. They then gain entrance into the society by 
strictly following the directions of the initiating committee which affords an 
afternoon's entertainment for the entire organization. 

During the first semester it has been our privilege to gain a knowledge, in 
a most interesting way, of several foreign countries, namely, Sweden, Norway, 
Italy and Japan. In nearly every case customs, religion, occupation, forms 
of entertainment and mannerisms of the citizens, and the history, industries, 
and scenery of the countries were discussed by a girl or girls who had either 
lived or visited there. Usually, in addition to their talk, they illustrated them 
by displaying garments, jewelry, silverware, money, linens, pictures, fans, 
flags, and other novelties. Masterpieces by famous writers of the several 
countries which depict typical life, were given by the girls. Records of coun- 
try folk songs, as well as opera numbers sung by noted artists, were obtained 
and given as an occasional treat. 

To Miss Skinner, our faculty advisor, we are grateful for inspiration and 
help in this year's work.

Sheboygan Club 

Sheboygan County has been well represented at Stout for many years. 
This year the number reached twelve, and these twelve decided to organize. 

At the first meeting purposes of the club were discussed and finally 
decided upon. They are as follows: 

i '* , T .° b ," ng the Sneb °yg an County students at Stout Institute into 
closer relationships. 

2. To advertise the Stout Institute at home. 

3. To form the nucleus of a Stout alumni association in Sheboygan 

The Sheboygan Club participated in all Stout activities. One of the first 
things which they accomplished as a group was the care of the club rooms 
for a week. Active advertising and special week-end features made this a 
big success. Then the club put on a dance for the benefit of the Annual. 
It was a big success in that everyone enjoyed it. and reported a good time.

T5h)i Z3win (Tit? Club 

The Twin City Club is a new Stout organization growing up from a mutual friend- 
ship which has existed between the students from Minneapolis and St. Paul since their 
arrival in Menomonie. 

The Twin City students met in the autumn of 1921 and decided to organize a club 
which would unite each member in a closer fellowship and promote friendship and 
encourage school spirit among their fellow students. Officers were elected at this meet- 
ing and a regular time set for business meetings each month. 

Menomonie offers wonderful opportunities for a great variety of outing parties or 
indoor entertainments and we expect to take advantage of the opportunities presented 
to us.

"Do you know I just can't get away from my Lynwood experiences." 
sighed the latest preceptress, (they had only six in one semester). 

Those girls were charmingly polite to me. You remember "Buzz" Worn- 
back with her drawl, and her poor, little campussed roommate. My first 
morning there we had breakfast in their room, an electric grill, you under- 
stand. That night the girls in the front rooms on first, gave a "midnight 
spread in my honor. Such delicacies, such jokes; why. with Madeline. 
Maybel. and Myrtle we were roaring continually. Harriet and Mildred did 
some clever dancing. — I wonder if they've had much training in that line: 
but funniest of all was Kathleen Hughes with her giggle. Remember the 
little typist, well she isn't returning next fall. Yes. that's it. 

1 sigh yet when I think how those girls worked on their middy suits, 
especially Irma Biech and Marcellene Stephany. Oh. yes. the middy parade 
is Friday, and don't mi?s it for you'll see every color of the rainbow and 
several not included even there. 

Yes. Jean still gurgles. Bertha has a new supply of practical jokes, and 
Amy never misses a minute of her twelve hours of sleep. Helen Paulson 
and Gertrude Woolley are paying extra for the extensive use of the phone. 
It's justified though, with 37 calls in one week. 

I've become a bridge maniac. Do you know. Catherine CafTney and 
Theodosia are sharks at the game? Oh. I forgot to include Phyllis with the 
wistful eyes, and her cousin. Bernice Stark. One night we played all during 
study hours with never a thought toward studying. 

But have you noticed my hair? Ellen Anderson taught we to do it 
this way. She's an artist in her line. Yet. Violet is out of campus, and Elva 
— well, she's still happy. I really had to scold Grace Halderson and Min- 
nette Eklund. — ringing the doorbell after midnight. Of course. I excused Min- 
nette. poor child, she's in love you know. 

The five little coquettes from second sent me this peanut on my birthday. 
The coquettes, oh. there's "Bee" Young. Chalotte Sprague. Margaret Kiehl. 
Ermina Pratch. and Nora Flom. They're such dears. 

My severest shock came one night when I caught Mabel Herendeen. 
Miriam Arthur and Myrtle Empy scaling the rear fence. Waiting for them 
were Elvira West and her roommate. I gasped with horror, but what could 
I do? 

Oh. yes. I'm giving a party tonight for "Dot" Gillette and Geneva 
Kinney. They expect friends on the 7:25. 

There's the door bell. now. 1 always think of Goldie and Erna when it 
rings. Oh. it's "A!" Witting. Come in. I'm ready to go.

Z5autter .Annex 

Bertha Tainter Annex, delightfully situated on the western bank of Lake 
Menomin, serves as the home of sixty-six Home Economics Students. With 
Miss Mabel Leedom as house mother, a remarkable spirit of co-operation 
exists between the Freshmen and Sophomore girls. 

Many have been the good times that all the girls have enjoyed together 
during the school year. At the time of the Thanksgiving recess a large num- 
ber of the girls remained at the Annex. Everything possible was done to 
prevent the pangs of home-sickness from creeping in. On Thursday evening 
about forty girls, with their boxes from home, gathered in the living room for 
tea, at which Miss Leedom presided. 

As the holidays approached, the Christmas spirit felt by the girls, came 
to a climax at the Christmas party given the last night. At eight o'clock in 
the living room, lighted by the Christmas tree, various types of people assem- 
bled to await the coming of Santa Claus. There were stately faculty members, 
queer old ladies, anxious little girls and boys, brave Jackies. as well as Mack 
Sennett's "Bathing Beauties." and a great many others. A program followed, 
consisting of a stunt from each floor, readings and songs by all. Suddenly 
the jingling of sleigh bells announced the arrival of Santa Claus whose abund- 
ant store held a suitable gift for each. Every gift was accompanied by a 
verse which was read aloud. Upon Santa's departure, refreshments in the 
form of stick candy and animal cookies were served, and the remainder of 
the time was spent in dancing. Long before day-break everyone was awak- 
ened by the sound of Christmas carols which came from the living room 
beneath the Christmas tree. 

The homey atmosphere is not limited to special occasions only. The 
happy times spent around the fireplace in winter and on the terrace above the 
lake in the autumn and spring will never be forgotten.

Pillows and windows are all you may see. 

But never mind, reader, they spell home to me. 
I just love its formidable exterior. 

No one would dare say 'twas inferior. 
I love its broad porch and its fine noble columns. 

If you wanted me to 1 could write, oh, two volumes 
'Bout the large living room, right in the middle. 

That's fine for dancing if someone'll fiddle. 
'Bout the quaint, narrow balconies that come handy. 

When Romeo leaves Juliet a nice box of candy. 
'Bout the inviting red fireplace that stands like a sentry 

To behold all that happens from exit to entry. 
And last, 'bout the snappy girl students that stay here. 

And now, dear reader, at the end of our story 
We know you'll agree, this is the best Dormitory.

"Hooray!" said the Fireplace to the Floor Lamp, "there goes the study 
bell, and those girls have all gone up stairs. Now we can talk about them all 
we want to. They're nice girls most of the time, but their chatter gets on my 
nerves once in a while — and those pieces they play — Dapper Dan — Yoo Hoo 
— you know the kind I mean. They just make me feel like gritting my marble 

"Well." answered the Floor Lamp, "that's true, but when they all sit 
around me evenings with their books or sewing, and sometimes, when they 
sing together, it gives me a nice, homelike feeling. After all. Fireplace, you'll 
have to admit that the Christmas party they had was pretty nice. Come 
now! When you saw the tree all lit. didn't you blaze away your hardest to 
make it a real party? By the way. have you noticed our new friends. The 
Curtains? I haven't heard them say how they like our Hall." 

"Do you really care to know?" piped The Curtains over the big front 
window. "You see, we've felt a bit strange, so far; but we've had so many 
compliments paid us that we feel we're quite an addition," and they swelled 
with pride. 

"That's all right. You are fine; but why not mention Old Faithful, 
The Edison. It's true that I'm a bit unsteady on my time — and have a sort 
of muffled tone; but what self-respecting Edison wouldn't with a pillow case 
stuffed in the front of it? And what would Blanche, Gladys, Amidon. and 
Dick do for dance music when Teressa and Mid go on a strike? What would 
Betty, Flo. Bill, and all those other girls do without me to play for them when 
they are anxiously waiting for the Postman on Saturday mornings? I guess 
I'm a pretty important member here!" 

"Now — now!" spoke the Davenport, "there have been times when I 
thought I was quite useful." 

"The only conclusion to be reached," said the Table and Chairs in 
union, "is that we're all important toward making The Hall a home; but 
without the girls to use and enjoy us. we'd not amount to much."

The La Salle Club was organized on October 17. 1 92 I . by a group of 
Catholic young men of the Industrial Arts Department. The purposes of the 
club are: to promote the common interest of the Catholic young men of The 
Stout Institute; to create a spirit of good fellowship and co-operation among 
these students by giving them a means of becoming better acquainted with 
one another; to inspire confidence and self-reliance when before others, by 
means of parliamentary practice, debate, and other activities; to co-operate 
with other organizations of The Stout Institute in social and other affairs; and 
to promote good scholarship among its members. 

Although the club was organized but a short time ago. it has been pro- 
gressing rapidly and is looking forward to a successful future.

The Marquette Club has had an increase of fifty per cent in member- 
ship over last year's enrollment. With a present enrollment of forty-two 
members, all interested and enthusiastic over the progress of the club, it has 
come to be one of the most prominent organizations of The Stout Institute. 

A new constitution has been adopted, and meetings are held every two 
weeks instead of once a month, as in the past. 

At each meeting a business session is held. After this there is a period 
of study such as acquiring a knowledge of the Madonas, the artists painting 
them, and the story of each. A program follows which consists of a musical 
number, reading, current events, and hymns sung by the girls. 

The following committees have been appointed to take care of various 
activities: missionary, social relief, publicity, program, social, and finance. 
The missionary and social relief work have been in co-operation with the 
Y. W. C. A. The heathens of China and Japan have been the recipients of 
the missionary money this year. A contribution from each member makes 
the nucleus of this fund. 

The social relief work has been local, most of it taking place before 
Thanksgiving and Christmas when baskets of delicious eatables were dis- 
tributed in Menomonie. 

Each member of the Marquette Club is proud to be a participant in the 
activities of this organization.

1922 Stout Annual 

y. w. <l z\. 

The Y. W. C. A. of The Stout Institute ranks second to none among the 
various school organizations, both as to the quality of its work and the number 
of members. This organization has for its purpose: 

1 . To lead students to faith in God through Jesus Christ. 

2. To lead them to membership and service in the Christian Church. 

3. To promote their growth in Christian faith and character, especially 
through a study of the Bible. 

4. To influence them to devote themselves in united effort with all 
Christians in making the will of Christ effective in human society nr.d to 
extending the kingdom of God throughout the world. 

Our Y. W. C. A. was formerly organized on the church membership 
basis, but this year the personal membership basis was adopted. The active 
members and the Cabinet, composed of a President. Vice President. Secre- 
tary, Undergraduate Field Representative, and the Chairmen of the eight 
committees and their advisors carry on the various activities. The Cabinet 
holds weekly meetings to discuss and act upon the proceedings of the "Y." 
The Religious Meetings Committee has charge of the weekly religious meet- 
ings. This year an effort has been made to introduce discussional meetings, 
and Bertha Conde's "The Business of Being a Friend," was used as a basis 
for these discussions. The spirit shown in these meetings has been especially 
good. AJapanese student, Abiko, spoke to the girls and faculty on "Customs 
in Japan." A Bible Study Committee has charge of Bible study work and has 
organized Bible study classes in the respective churches. 

The Y. W. C. A. seeks to aid in the social life of the school and this 
phase of work is taken care of by the Social Committee. The Annual 
Mixer Picnic and Kid Party were both a huge success. 

The Cabinet of 1921-22 have undertaken the work of adding to the 
furnishings of the Y. W. C. A. Club rooms, which are located on the third 
floor in the Gymnasium. Wicker furniture was purchased, new couch covers, 
pillows, and various articles to make the room comfortable and attractive. A 
tea was given for all the Home Economics students and faculty on January 
I 4th in the Club rooms. 

Besides the work done in the school the Stout Y. W. C. A. aids in 
financing Mrs. Ziemann (formerly Miss Dunning), the foreign missionary to 
China; aids in the support of the National organization, and sends six or more 
delegates to the Geneva Conference. 

The World Fellowship Committee has done splendid work in raising 
funds by the sale of candy and stationery, for the support of Mrs. Ziemann. 
The Finance Committee has raised money by the sale of 1 922 Stout calendars, 
by membership dues, and by a circus and play to be given later in the year. 

Other important committees are Membership, whose work it is to secure 
new members; Publicity Committee, which makes posters for all activities of 
the "Y" and keeps the Y. W. C. A. bulletin board up to date with general 
information; Social Service Committee, whose members aid the poor by 
giving Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, clothing, flowers, and cheer; and 
more than this, aims to impress the girls with the example of the Spirit of 
Service which "Our Master" taught us. 

A new field added to our organization is the Undergraduate Field Repre- 
sentative, whose duty it is to establish a closer relation between the association 
and other schools, and thus aid in the solution of various problems. 

Every member of the Stout Y. W. C. A. should be proud of her associa- 
tion, for it ranks high among the associations of the smaller colleges.

y. ytt. <£. ^A. 

In the early part of the school year an enthusiasm was shown by a few 
students and faculty to organize a Y. M. C. A. at Stout. For the last five or 
six years Stout has been without a Y. M. C. A. This sentiment finally cul- 
minated in a series of meetings and in the early part of February an organiza- 
tion was started with the following purposes: 

1. To lead students to a faith in God through Jesus Christ. 

2. To lead them into membership and service in the Christian church. 

3. To promote their growth in Christian faith, especially through the 
study of the Bible. 

4. To challenge them to devote themselves in united effort to make ths 
will of God effective in human society, and extend His kingdom throughout 
the world. 

The following charter officers were elected to hold office for one year or 
until they have to resign on account of leaving school: 




Secretary and Treasurer 

The following committee chairmen were appointed for the coming year: 









Religious Meetings 

Social and Campus Service 

On Wednesday evening, February 22. the first semi-annual business 
meeting was held. It was in the form of a luncheon and was held at the 
supper hour. A program was given which consisted of several talks and a 
short address by Mr. Vance, after which a short business session was held. 
There were about 20 fellows present and everyone had a good time. The 
officers are planning on holding these at intervals throughout the year. 

We all hope that this association will enlarge and become one of the 
largest organizations at Stout, and that it will be able to do a great deal of 
good. We wish it the best success possible.

The Men's Glee Club of Stout was organized in the fall of 1920 with 32 
members on the roll, and through the efficient leadership of Mr. Good and 
♦he hearty cooperation of the members, prepared a concert program and ren- 
dered two concerts, one of which was given in the Stout auditorium and the 
other at Knapp, Wisconsin. The club has become a very active and successful 
organizaiton and is a credit to the school. 

At the beginning of the school year of 1921-1922 the old members who 
returned decided to start immediately to reorganize the club for the coming 
year. A meeting was held and a call for new members was issued. About 
twenty new men responded and the above officers were elected. As this goes

The fall of 1921 marked the beginning of a Dramatic Club at Stout Insti- 
tute. A group of students known as "The Manual Arts Players" have organ- 
ized according to the Little Theater Movement. This Little Theater Move- 
ment, which is becoming so universal, has been greatly stimulated by the 
organization of many college and community clubs, and by the extensive 
writing of one-act plays for amateur players. 

The "Manual Arts Players" have for their purpose the cultivation of a 
taste for the best dramatic literature; the development of a certain degree of 
acting ability; and training in the fundamentals of amateur coaching. 

The membership is limited to fifty. The members are working in two 
sections under the supervision of Miss Klein. At its first public appearance the 
club presented two one-act plays — "The Maker of Dreams," by Oliphant 
Down, and "Spreading the News." by Lady Gregory.

The annual play, "The Touchdown," was given in the auditorium. No- 
vember 18, 1921, for the benefit of the Stout Annual. The proceeds helped 
to reduce the cost of the Annual to the students. 

The cast: 

Grant Hayden, expert football player and clever amateur sculptor. A Junior at 

Siddell Herman Fink 

Robert Hayden, Grant's younger brother Herbert Maxwell 

Alfred Woolfe. a dissipated football player Hans Anderson 

Junis Brooks, just a Sophomore L. N. Kunkle 

Gene Clarks. coach of Siddell eleven EL L Lind 

George Holman. football rooter Joe Claes 

Henry Sumner, one of the younger professors P. H. Noyes 

Watassa Faulkner, a girl student and football enthusiast Kathleen Doran 

Rena Maynard, a girl student; Grant's sweetheart Claire Kennedy 

Margery Carson, a Siddell Junior who lisps Estelle Schwartz 

Dollie Sylverter, one of the Sylverter twins Mildred Daane 

Evelyn Sylverter, Dollie's echo Edith Beste 

Priscilla Parmalee, Dean's assistant Agnes Bahlert 

The four acts are laid in the Siddell Glee Club Assembly Room. 

The events of the play take place during the football season at Siddell. 
beginning just before the big game with Hinsdale. The team is suffering be- 
cause Hayden is not playing and his substitute, Alfred Woolfe, is too dissipated 
to indulge in athletics. Hayden explains to Professor Sumner that due to 
financial difficulties he cannot play and must spend his time otherwise; but 
that he desires to keep the true state of matters from his younger brother. 
Bob. At present Grant, who is a clever amateur sculptor, is at work on a 
figure, "The Hunter," which he hopes will win the prize and thus give him 
the means to keep himself and Bob at school. Misunderstanding arises from 
his refusal to make explanations and even Bob turns from him. Aroused by 
jealousy, Woolfe prompts Watassa Faulkner, a girl student and football en- 
thusiast, to demolish "The Hunter" in the belief, that with his work lost, Hay- 
den can be persuaded to play on the team. Bob, finding what Watassa has 
done, takes the blame. Watassa. realizing the illusion, inspires Hayden to 
commence a new piece, the statue of an Indian maid, and poses for him. The 
day of the game with Hinsdale arrives with Woolfe unable to play. In the 
last quarter, with defeat almost certain. Grant enters the game and by scoring 
a touchdown, carries a victory for Siddell. Explanations and confessions fol- 
low, mysteries are cleared, news of the winning of the prize by Haydens 
work is received and the play ends happily. 

Every member of the cast was markedly placed at his best, making the 
play a grand success. The acting was especially good and clever throughout. 
The play showed excellent training and much credit is due Mr. Couvillian under 
whose direction the play was produced.

The Manual Arts Players, under the direction of Miss Klein, presented 
two very appropriate one-act plays before an appreciative audience in the 
auditorium on Friday evening, March 1 I . 

The first sketch, "Spreading the News," by Lady Gregory, a comedy 
with highly picturesque and colorful Irish peasant costumes, was a delight to 
everyone. The characters were Mildred Thorn, Gilbert Schultz, Madeline 
Reese, Reginald Alcock, Mercine Dittes, Harriet Warmington, Wayne Hughes, 
W. L. Osmun, Alfred Humphrey, and Clarence Buckley. 

Carolyn Nester as Pierrette, Herman Fink as Pierrot, and Frank Keller- 
man as the manufacturer, acted in "The Maker of Dreams." Little Mary 
Helen McGinnis and Betty Jean Keith, the children of Pierrette's dream did 
their parts wonderfully well for such wee tots. 

Every member of the cast was well chosen, suited in every respect to his 
part. The acting had a professional finish and was extremely clever through- 
out the two sketches.

The play "Mary's Millions," under the auspices of the Y. W. C. A., and 
with Miss Kelsey as directress, was given April 7th in the Stout Auditorium. 

"Mary's Millions" was a comedy in three acts, crowded with natural 
humor and full of the brightest of clever sayings. A quiet New England village 
is all agog over the arrival of a pair of fortune hunters who claim to be titled 
foreigners. The story is a conflict between crafty sophistication and rugged 
honesty, as the Count Victor De Selles and his sister. Lola, scheme to get 
possession of "Mary's Millions." Their wily efforts start a rapid train of 
complications as Mary's pearls mysteriously disappear and her "millions" are 
being wildly speculated with. 

The characters for the play were very well suited to their parts, and 
every member displayed extremely clever acting.

Z31)e Stoutonia 

The "Stoutonia," the weekly publication of The Stout Institute, is 
edited and printed by the students, under the direction of Mr. C. W. Hague, 
printing instructor, and Arthur Anderson as Editor-in-Chief. The members 
of the Editorial Staff are elected from the student body on their merits and 
serve until they leave school; whereupon under-classmen are generally chosen 
to fill the vacancies. 

At the annual convention of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Press Associa- 
tion, held in December, 1921, "The Stoutonia" was formally granted a mem- 
bership. The purposes of the organization are: to promote a friendly rela- 
tionship between the colleges of the state; to maintain high standards of col- 
lege journalism; to aid in the solution of problems for the editors and business 
managers of college publications; and to provide desirable publicity for the 
colleges that it represents. "The Stoutonia" may feel particularly fortunate in 
being granted affiliation with this organization since our status as a publication 
of collegiate grade is now recognized throughout the state.

The Stoutonia Mechanical Staff was organized in the second semester by 
five men who had completed the course in printing and wished to gain further 
experience in the publishing of a school paper. Much of the responsibility 
for printing the Stoutonia was taken over by the staff, thus minimizing the 
burden on Mr. Hague, who was even then taxed to the limit. 

During the first semester the paper was put out by the advanced classes, 
but the limited number of students in these classes in the second semester 
necessitated the forming of a permanent mechanical staff. 

The work was systematized so that each man was in charge for a certain 
number of weeks with the others cooperating in make-up, setting of advertise- 
ments, and press work. With the work limited to five men, practically all of 
their spare time was taken up in getting the paper into the hands of the student 
body by Thursday afternoon.

An orange and black color scheme, cornstalks, and jack-o-lanterns, sug- 
gestive of Hallowe'en, ghosts, and bats, furnished an attractive setting for 
the Junior-Senior dance given in the gymnasium Friday evening, October 28th. 

Festoons of orange and black were hung from the ceiling, almost hiding 
lights dim-shaded with orange. Cornstalks fenced in the orchestra, and 
grinning jack-o-lanterns challenged any of the dancers to defy their terrible 
powers. In a secluded corner a gaily decorated keg, flanked by trays of 
glasses, offered refreshment between dances. 

Perhaps it was the spirit of the night, perhaps it was the orchestra, per- 
haps it was the fine hospitality of the Junior-Senior class — most probably it 
was a mixture of the three, that made the evening so perfect. At all events 
the evening was pleasant, very pleasant, and midnight with its "Home Sweet 
Home" came far too soon.

Backward turned the hands of time on Saturday evening. October 29th, 
backward at least in the gymnasium, where might have been found almost two 
hundred adorable children, from the pinafore stage to the age of braids. 

There were dainty, fairy-like creatures, almost too fragile to play with; 
there were little wee kiddies in Stout denim. There were tiny maids in ging- 
ham frocks, and bigger ones in muslin. There were curls, and bows, and 
braids and bobs, all charmingly reminiscent. Not only girls were there, but 
boys, too. Joe's mother had had remarkable success, and got her son there 
with hair in glistening order, and collar high and white. Paul, scorning child- 
ish games, preferred the parallel bars. Huck Finn, hardly to be recognized in 
"company clothes," but natural as to freckles and missing teeth, found girls 
much to his liking. Poor Reuben, handicapped by a girl on either arm. and 
a huge teddy bear besides, found the evening somewhat irksome until dancing 
effectually excluded the third one. Little Lord Fauntleroy. in spite of curls 
and sash, found it all much fun, and the spoiled little boy of a year ago aston- 
ished everyone by his appearance in real boy's clothes. Jim in overalls was a 
bit reserved. Bill, bigger'n the others, scorned them all. save one, and cleverly

evaded being captured as the fair lady in London Bridge. Two such inde- 
pendent elements as Paul and Bill naturally clashed at first sight, and violent 
was the fight ensuing. Shrieks, wails, entreaties filled the air, as the two figures 
rolled about the floor. Bill, triumphant, held Paul's head to the floor for a 
full minute and nonchalantly received the admiring praises of the little girls. 

The Father and the Mother watched the party with much amusement, 
the Nurse was busy keeping the Child from harm. A Regular Stout Student 
kept them company; a happy student whose sewing was "in." Another Stout 
student there was in uniform, with hair so marvelously puffed that one won- 
dered just what forces, opposing gravity, were at work to keep it there. But 
none were more enthusiastic than she, nor entered into the games more whole- 
heartedly. And in them all you would never have recognized a dignitary of 
the classroom. 

Games that all real children play found favor once again. Drop the 
Handkerchief, Farmer in the Dell, Three Deep, and countless others, with 
dancing going on between times. And through it all came and went little 
squabbles and spats, tears and making up, everything incident to a children's 

The most important of all was the abundance of things to eat. Lollipops 
of unbelievable brilliant hues were consumed in astonishing numbers, but left 
ample space for graham crackers and red-cheeked apples. 

Alas, bedtime, the one Nemesis of childhood, came on in spite of all the 
merrymaking, and ten o'clock found the wee ones quite too drowsy to carry 
on. Wraps were donned, scarfs tied in place, the last overshoe hunted out 
and buckled on, and sleepy goodnights said, as faces were turned to home and 

And the hands of time moved forward.

On the night of February I Ith. the big Stout Circus, given in the Home Economic* 
Building, under the auspices of the Y. W. C. A. was the cause of much fun and excite- 
ment. It is doubtful, if not actually impossible, that any other circus has ever, or will 
ever, offer the varied original, enticing attractions in such numbers as they were offered 
here. There was nothing lacking in the proper atmosphere. Loud-voiced vendors offer- 
ing popcorn balls, pink lemonade, sandwiches, ice cream cones, balloons, taffy-apples, 
and bouquets of flowers were everywhere. A band blared forth incessantly; and above 
it all could be heard the low omnious roaring of the animals as they impatiently awaited 
their turn to act. 

The main ring performance, heralded by a band, commenced at seven o'clock and 
offered everything in the way of thrilling and hair-raising feats by man and beast. 
There was "Sophie." the trained horse which would let but one man. her trainer, ride 
her successfully. Two mighty elephantine creatures, moguls from the Indian jungles, 
bearing each a slippery seal upon his back, charged into the ring in the wake of their 
master and performed stupendous feats. Two lions, under the gentle guidance of a most 
fair and courageous maid, were alternatively whipped and coaxed protestingly through 
acts as difficult as they were spellbinding. Had Ben Hur witnessed the chariot races 
at this circus, he doubtless would have hung his head in the profound realization of his 
own inferiority in such a contest. One of the much featured morsels of entertainment 
was the marvelous display of acrobatics by the illustrious Australian Acrobats. Two 
striking features were the spring dance (so aesthetic, so enlightening, and with so much 
finesse), and the scene of the judgment of the faculty of Stout Institute. Demons in 
all their hideous firiness descended into the audience and captured certain of the most 
sinning ones, carrying them off to a sizzling doom. Two acts of a more delicate nature 
were offered to relieve the tension of these hair-raisers. A series of charming choruses, 
by girls in costume: and a group of living pictures, with orchestral accompaniment, were 
highly entertaining. And throughout the entire performance there came and went 
clowns of every description, doing everything clowns usually do. Imitative, they were, 
to the highest degree, and showing rare promises of possibilities yet to be realized. 

Following the main ring, a concert in the way of a minstrel show was given by the 
Beta Minstrels. This is a troupe of eleven world-renowned court favorites, every mem- 
ber a talent in himself. Their act was intensely and side-splittingly entertaining, varied, 
replete, and complete. Going on at all times during the circus performance were numer- 
ous side-shows, of many varieties both in style and mode of entertainment. A most 
charming little sketch was offered in one. "An Old Sweetheart of Mine." The crazy 
house which took insane people and produced them again crazier than before, was a 
series of violent shocks, mental, physical, electrical, and emotional. Fortune tellers, 
those omnicient seers, were there in numbers, and around all these were booths where 
candy, ice cream, lollypops. and lemonade were available. 

The circus was indeed a stupendous success, and will always be remembered as one 
of the finest examples of Stout pep and co-operation.

You've heard about the faculty rules. 
But the worst has come not yet; 

In nineteen-thirty they will be 
Much worse it's safe to bet. 

Our boys will be of purer mind. 

Because a rule brand-new 
Decrees that ladies shall not wear 

The naughty peek-o-boo. 

The girls will have to go to bed 

A quarter after eight. 
Which really is no more than right. 

'Cause that is awful late. 

And dancing halls will be tabooed. 

And flowing bowls and wassails; 
The men will all grow up as profs. 

Or petrify as fossils. 

The time now lost in social life 

Will turn to enterprise. 
And things now dead, or failing fast. 

Take on a healthy guise. 

The Glee Club will excel in glee. 
The band outgrow its freaks. 

And Wilson will appoint a man 
To oil it when it squeaks. 

There will be laws on student's hair. 
To keep them human kind — 

Restrictions on the height above 
And distance down behind. 

In short 'twill be a blissful life. 

All run by rule of thumb; 
The vices quelled, and virtue free — 

All hail, your time has come.

Even if we haven't any back yard to play in and didn't win the scholar- 
ship cup, we make a pretty good training school for any stray prospects, who 
want to have their rough edges knocked off. We are noted for brains and 
style, not beauty, and we specialize in membership in all college organizations 
and insist on managing the Stoutonia. Our board is cheap because there are a 
lot of us, and once in a while one of us gets a date. 

We regret that the crowded condition of our tenement house directly 
facing Wilson Avenue prevents our taking in new girls, but there's a reason. 

Above all, we still maintain a few members, who have winning ways. We 
strive to follow their example, and never hesitate to break a date when we 
have a chance for a better one. 

Yours for a big future,

.Amcna the brothers 

Dear Decker 

You muil be »ure and come over to see u». now that we are all fettled in our nice, big 
room*. They u»ed to be the Beaver room*, you know, so we feel quite at home. Nothing 
is too fine for our crowd. Of course we had to pledge quite a lot of men to fill the house, 
since none of our men arc very husky. Don't worry about us though. we will be sure to 
keep indoors during fly-swatting season. 

You will be proud to know that we are keeping up the club reputation for speed, 
and with the Satellites always introduce the latest styles in college circles. Brother N 
is especially advanced in his ideas, having appeared on the campus wearing an ankle watch. 
It shows up especially well on windy days. The administration has required us to wear 
ers on our silk shirts, for we were dazzling all the co-eds and lowering the scholar- 
ship of the Institute. Since six men contrived to slip into the basketball team, we have 
ranked high in athletics, and our stock jumped above par at Tainter Annex. \* - have 
framed the picture you sent us ■ Hart, Scharfner and Marx, and have hung it 

above the trophy in our room. We pay a special draftsman to part our hair, so rest 
assured that our appearance is all that the most particular of alums could wish for. 

Yours for speed. 

Menomin Club. 

Dear Lind: 

We are having our initiation next month for four of the best pledges you have ever 
seen — nice. big. strapping youngsters, all of them. Look like football letter men. Keeping 
up the old athletic rep y'know. 

Just had the plans drawn up for our new house which will soon be built on the corner 
to the west of our present home. Some looking house; won't cost much but will make 
all the rest of the houses turn green with envy. We'll need a good house after this for 
rushing as the R. K. O.s have just leased a mansion which they are rapidly filling up by 
using four rented cars and five pugilists. 

A new house is absolutely essential if we expect to grab any more athletic captains 
and editors of the Stoutonia. We are rivaling the Menomin Gang in captains and will soon 
surpass them when we have a house. Two of the fellows already have swell machines and 
we have pledged four prize fighters, so we won't hnve to worry about that. 

We want you here for the initiation. Bring the wife and kids: we'll find room for 

Remember the house. 


The P. S. B. Outfit. 

R. K. O. 
Dear Hep: 

It's pretty near time for me to say my "Now I Lay Me'»." but I'll spend a few minutes 

away from my books to write you a line. We showed the campus a few things this last 
semester. We showed them that we were regular guys and could get 36 hours of "M" it 
we wanted to. and we did. We're popular with the co-eds again now. That always hap- 
pens in the spring, and we wonder if it has anything to do with our canoes. We don't any 
of us go to Sunday School any more, and five of the fellows have learned to swear. \& e 
burned up all our hymn books and pretty near sang "Little Brown Jug" the other day. 
We fuss at least once a month now and have real, live girls. That's the life, boy! \* e 
specialize in business managers of all kinds. Johnson is still keeping up the athletic rep. 
while brothers Jenson and Richards take care of the alcove athletics. Some of our pledget 

step out once in a while so we still retain our social reputation. 

As ever.

Being the only girls* athletic club in the school, the popularity of the club is evident. 
This year the club has about sixty-five members, three-fourths of whom are active. At 
the end of the season about twenty-three girls were eligible for the "S," having covered the 
required number of miles. 

On October 8th the Hare and Hound Chase took place. This proved to be rather 
unique as the Freshmen found the lunch and camped beside it while they waited for the 
Sophomores to return. 

On November 27th, the club had a sleigh-ride, and after a pleasant hour spent on 
the hay racks the girls went to the Y. W. C. A. club rooms where hot refreshments 
awaited them. 

The hikes were mainly short ones taken to the Asylum, Paradise Valley, Menomonie 
Junction. Irvington. Downsville. and on the cement road to Eau Claire.

Ob* ^tten's Ifikcr Club 

Early in the school year the Men's Hiker Club was reorganized with the assistance 
of last year's members. About twenty-five men signed up at the second meeting. Many 
short hikes were taken, including hikes to neighboring towns. When Stout played the 
Eau Claire Normal School in football, seven men hiked to Eau Claire in six hours' time. 
This was quite a hike considering that it was the first long one of the year. 

During the Thanksgiving vacation, the split hike was planned: some of the members 
were to hike to La Crosse and others to Minneapolis, but owing to the fact that deep 
snow covered the ground the hikes could not be taken. This was the only chance that 
a hike of more than sixty-five miles could be made during the year. 

In order to secure a Stout Emblem, the Athletic Council have decided that the mem- 
bers of the Men's Hiker Club must walk two hundred miles or more. Up to the Christ- 
mas holidays at least four members had walked a total of one hundred and ten miles 
each. The past year has been a successful and happy one. and it is the hope of the 
entire organization that those of us who come back next year, will continue the work, 
and make the Men's Hiker Club a worthwhile organization.

The spirit of victory which took possession of the Stout gridiron in the 
fall of 1920 carried through, and made itself felt even more keenly in 1921. 
Something must have warned Coach Miller to prepare for a great season, for 
the snow had scarcely left the ground in the spring when he sent out his first 
call for football men. Spring practice was carried on until the hot weather 
prevented further action. 


1922 Stout ^Vmtual 

Buff mi re (Capt.) 


A few weeks before the opening of school in the fall, a second call went 
out to prospective players to return a few weeks early to begin practice. 

A camp was established at Riverside park and here the men began 
solving the problems of the gridiron sport. The idea was a new one in the 
history of Stout football, but the results were pleasing for it prepared the 
men for the hard session of training which lay before them. 

On Saturday. October 1st. the team went into action for the first game 
of the season, against the Eau Claire Normal team. 

The first whistle sent both teams off with a rush. Time after time the 
Eau Claire backs pounded the line for only small gains. During the first 
quarter Eau Claire threatened to score but Captain Buffmire intercepted a pass 
on Stout's five-yard line and ran ninety-five yards for the first touchdown. 
Damberg playing left half successfully sent two drop kicks from the forty and 
forty-five-yard lines in two attempts. Niles also completed a forty-yard kick. 


1922 Stout ^Vnttual 




In the third quarter Eau Claire tried to gain by passing which proved 
disastrous. Joyce intercepted a pass and ran forty yards for the second touch- 
down. The third counter came when Pieritz intercepted a pass and ran 
forty yards for the final score. 

The team came out of the game in good physical condition with the 
exception of Schultz who started the game at end, but had to be withdrawn 
because of a fractured ankle. 

Although the game was not a great exhibition of football it proved that 
Coach Miller possessed some of the best material for offensive and defensive 
playing that had ever assembled under the blue and white. 

The second game of the season was with Macalester College at St. Paul. 
Coach Miller decided to drop his line formations for the week and drill his 
line on the Minnesota shift, which they were able to execute in good form by 
the end of the week. 

The first part of the game looked disastrous. The fast Macalester back* 
repeatedly plowed through the Stout line for gains, making numerous first 
downs. The defence, however, tightened and forced the opponents to punt.

For the remainder of the game neither team was able to get closer than 
their opponent's twenty-yard line, except in the second quarter when Ells- 
worth intercepted a pass and ran for a touchdown, but was called back by 
the referee who blew his whistle before the pass was completed. 

On October 15 th we took on the pedagoges from Winona. School 
closed at two forty-five and the student body as a whole had its first oppor- 
tunity to see the team in action and to give it their full support. 

Stout's first touchdown came as a result of a perfect pass — Damberg to 
Buffmire. The next three followed in quick succession after old-fashioned 
line plunging. The line broke through at different times and blocked punts 
which counted as safeties when a Stout player fell on the ball behind the 
goal. These savage attacks by Stout seemed to unnerve the teachers and the 
game lost the spirit and pep it had started with. In the third quarter substi- 
tutes took the place of regulars, and held Winona scoreless for the remaining 

Playing with a dash that won for Stout the State conference title, the Stout 
team defeated River Falls by a score of I 4 to 7. A week of strenuous prac- 
tice, preceded this game and the team and many of the students invaded the 
River Falls camp with a determination to put forth their best. 


1922 Stout TAnnual 




The toss was won by River Falls who chose to receive, but fumbled the 
ball which was recovered by Stout. A series of successful line plunges fol- 
lowed and before the first quarter was over Stout had crossed their opponent's 
goal for the first touchdown. 

In the last quarter River Falls completed three passes, gaining forty-five 
yards, but the Stout defence held on the thirty-yard line and received the 
ball on downs. Niles punted out of danger and River Falls again attempted 
to pass which proved fatal, for Johnson intercepted a pass and carried it 
forty-five yards. Three line plunges and the ball went over the goal for the 
second touchdown. Damberg kicked the goal and the time was practically 
up. Stout had won one of the greatest football games in the history of the 
institution, and was on the road to still greater honors. 

The trades men from Minneapolis were the next to take the count before 
Stout's mighty machine. 

The city visitors presented a strong defence, but their offense never 
threatened our goal. Bob Marshal had drilled his men in the mysterious 
Minnesota shift, but to no avail. Stout made its first touchdown in less than 
two minutes after the first whistle, when the visitors were forced to punt on 
their own ten-yard line. 


1922 Stout Annual 



The line broke through and blocked the kick and Schinke, recovering, 
went over for the touchdown. The second touchdown came when Buffmire 
took a pass and circled the end. Johnson carried the ball through the line 
for the third counter. 

In the second quarter Joyce and Ellsworth took long passes which netted 
two more touchdowns. 

No event in the history, of The Stout Institute ever aroused more en- 
thusiasm and good clean pep than the conference game with Superior Normal. 
The entire school and city were aroused by the football spirit that cheered the 
team to victory. 

Superior was the only undefeated team in the northern district and all 
hopes of a chance at the title were centered on a victory over Superior. 

The first few plays showed that the spirit behind the team had had its 
effects upon the visitors, for they were plainly nervous. A series of line 
plunges netted long gains, and before the first quarter was up Stout had 
placed the pig skin behind the visitors' goal, and Damberg kicked goal. 

Superior's attack made it necessary for Stout to keep the ball in their 
own possession as long as possible. Line plunging was resorted to, and first 
downs were made numerous times. A short pass, Damberg to Buffmire, 
netted the second touchdown. The goal kick failed and the score stood 1 3 
and 12. 


1922 Stout Annual 



Superior executed some long end runs, and Stout while on the offensive, 
came back with powerful attacks through the line and with snappy passes. In 
the last few minutes of the game, Superior had the ball on Stout's twenty-yard 
line, directly in front of the goal posts and it was first down. Superior strove 
to circle the ends, but the line held and on the fourth down Superior prepared 
to kick. No single moment during the whole season was more thrilling than 
this one. The prayers of the rooters must have been heard for the ball went 
wild. Stout had won the most momentous and thrilling game of this and 
many seasons, and with it came the honor of State championship. 

The school and the city combined their efforts to show how much they 
appreciated the efforts of the team. 

Subscriptions taken among the students and faculty were sufficient to 
present each man who had earned his "S" with a sweater and a gold football 
as a watch-charm. The Commercial Club royally entertained the entire squad 
at a banquet held at the Commercial Club rooms, where the appreciation of 
the citizens of Menomonie was freely expressed. Alvern Damberg was elected 
by his team-mates to captain next year's squad. 

May we hope that in years to come. Stout can place upon the gridiron 
men who represent the school in spirit and in letter, as we feel the squad of 
1921 has done.

Just as we were emerging from a most successful football season, ath- 
letes began grooming for the second major sport, basketball. 

A large squad of men began their preliminary work under the direction 
of Loyde George, and for three weeks worked at the fundamentals of the 
game, and then were turned over to Mr. Brown who was to direct the des- 
tinies of the squad. 

McDonald was chosen by his team-mates to captain the squad. His 
elusive floor work and shooting eye made him one of the most dangerous men 
in the conference race. 


1922 Stout Annual 

Niles, who was McDonald's running-mate at forward, had proven his 
worth the previous year on the Stout team and on the Legion team. His 
speedy floor work and passing made him a most valuable asset to the team. 

Judish was a new man on the squad, hailing from Michigan. He and 
Niles took turns at the forward position. Judish played a very consistent 
game and his shooting eye was one of the reasons for Stout holding the heavy 
end of the score board. 

Johnson, who starred in the role of guard, played in a most commend- 
able fashion. "Johnny" had the faculty of always knowing where the ball 
was. and kept the opposing team at a saft range. 

Smith played a very consistent game throughout the season, and his 
guarding ability kept the Stout goal safe at all times, his shooting added many 
points to the tally. 

George did the ascension work for his team-mates, and surprised many 
a taller opponent by the way he went up into the atmosphere at center. His 
knowledge of the game and his floor work made him one of the main pillars 
in the team. 

Trinko. one of the quintet of Menomonie men. made a reputation for 
himself at guard. Smashing up the opponents' teamwork was his specialty. 

Besides the letter men. Leininger. Cook. Topliss. Tribilcock. Simonson. 
and Adams did stellar work in whipping the team into shape and should 
prove excellent material for next year. 

On December 1 6th the season opened with a practise game with Eau 
Claire Y. M. C. All Stars. Stout winning by a top-heavy score of 4 1 to 8. 
On January 10th Stout defeated the Winona Normal team. 32 to 10. but the 
score in no way indicated the strength of the Normal team; they passed 
smoothly and kept Stout on the jump through the entire period. 

Luther College met us on our own floor January 1 3th. They came with 
the reputation of not having lost a single game, and Stout fans expected to 
see a real tussel; but it proved otherwise for Stout walked off with an easy 
victory of 29 to 9. 


1922 Stout Annual 

With all the men in excellent condition, and every one alive to the fact 
that we had a winning team, we took on Stevens Point in the first conference 
game of the season. For the first part of the game, the visitors put up a 
strong defence and even out-scored Stout. In the second half Stout com- 
pletely swamped the visitors. The five-man defence compelled Stevens Point 
to try the long shot, but few of them counted. McDonald was high score 
man with a total of ten baskets. Johnsons floor work kept the ball out of 
danger and he showed good form in shooting fouls, making six out of seven. 
The game was fast, but was featured by many fouls. The half ended with 
Stout leading 52 to 12. 

On January 27th the team met the Minnesota Aggies on their own floor. 
This was the team's first game away from home, and the large floor at the 
Aggie school gave the team a real test. The game was fast and exciting. The 
Aggies apparently still remembered last year's defeat, but the boys came home 
winners 1 3 to 23. 

On February 3rd River Falls visited us and was fortunate enough to 
catch us on an off night. The boys worked hard, but were unable to make 
their shots count; as a result River Falls took the victory of 23 to II. 

The following week Superior Normal came down to meet their Waterloo. 
Our athletes took their measure by a score of 19 to 24 in a clever exhibition 
of basketball. 

The Minnesota Aggies, seeking revenge in a return game on February 
1 7th, were unable to blot out their previous defeat and their best efforts 
resulted only in a defeat of 44 to 11. 

So far in the season Stout had been fortunate in that they had been able 
to play all but one game on their home floor. The next three games were of 
vital importance in the conference race and were to be played on the oppo- 
nent's floor. 

Stevens Point was the first of the three. The first half ended with 
Stevens Point in the lead after a desperate struggle. The second half, how- 
ever, turned the tables. Stout rallied and fought their way to a victory of 36 
to 18. 


1922 Stout ^Annual 

The following week was one not soon to be forgotten by the team or the 
student body, for the game with River Falls would decide whether or not we 
oould claim the Northern Championship. A special train, carrying students 
and city people, left Menomonie at four forty-five in the afternoon and arrived 
in River Falls in time for the game. The game was fast and close, the last 
half ending with a tie score of 1 8 to 18. Five minutes over time was played. 
River Falls made a free throw and McDonald scored a basket, and the game 
ended 19 to 20 in favor of Stout. 

The following Saturday the team ventured to Superior for the final clash. 
A rough game took place and Stout emerged victors to the tune of 4 1 to 13 
and as now tie with Eau Claire Normal for the Northern Championship, both 
teams having lost one game to River Falls. 

Coach Philips of Eau Claire, refused to play off the tie on the grounds 
that his team was over trained and was in no condition to continue the season. 
So Stout took the second championship title of the year. 

The next year's team has our very best wishes, and as several of this 
year's squad will carry on, we can see nothing but another championship team 
in sight. 


Shortly after the beginning of the basketball season, Mr. Miller called a 
meeting of the presidents of the various school clubs. The following clubs 
were represented: P. D. A.s, P. B.s, R. K. O., Glee Club, Hiker's Club, and 
the La Salle Club. Mr. Miller suggested that a club basketball tournament be 
held, that it be run on a percentage basis, and the club team receiving the 
highest percentage be given a silver loving cup. All of the clubs received 
Mr. Miller's suggestion with enthusiasm and all were well represented at prac- 
tice, for which each team was assigned an evening in the gym. 

Each team was scheduled to play five games, thereby playing every 
other team in the tournament. The games were played after school and on 
Saturdays, on the Armory floor. Most of the games were well attended and 
a great deal of spirit was shown by the members of the various organizations 
who were supporting their teams. 

The only team being able to play their whole schedule without defeat, 
was the P. D. A.s; they, therefore, received the silver cup which was donated 
by the Jungck Sporting Goods Company. 


This season The Stout Institute had several men represented in the local 
tournament and one representative at Minneapolis in the Northwestern meet. 
Due to a change in the rules of the National Association which allowed pro- 
fessionals to partake with the amateurs the chances of placing were very 

In the local tournament West Burdick took first place and two more men 
placed. Eschied came in fifth place and Alvern Damberg took seventh place.

West Burdick was sent to Minneapolis to represent Stout, but did not place. 
There were four ex-champions in this meet, besides other professional skiers. 
Next year the men expect to have better facilities to practice on. The 
sport is growing and furnishes many thrills, both to the skiers and the spec- 
tators. It is hoped that more men will show an interest and help advance the 

1922 GYM TEAM 

Another championship has been added to the list of honors in athletics 
by the Stout Gymnastic team, having received first honors in Class "C," at 
the Northwest Gymnastic meet which was held at the University of Minnesota 
armory. March 25. 1922. The work required in Class "C" was ten obligatory 
exercises on five different kinds of apparatus, namely: horizontal bar, horse, 
parallel bars, flying wings, and mats. This was an open tournament for all 
universities, colleges, and societies of the Northwest. Fifteen teams were 
entered in Class **C,*' making a total of one hundred and fourteen men; Class 
'"A" being made up of university men. individual stars of long standing. 

Last year Stout was represented by five men who entered the meet as 
individuals, requirements for a team entering this tournament makes it neces- 
sary to enter at least six men in order to win some of the cups. The average 
of the five men was 89.23, this was 1.2 below the average of the team taking 
first place. 

This year's team was organized February 15. Mr. Savage, the only man 
left from last year's team, was elected captain. Training was started imme- 
diately after the election under the competent direction and supervision of 
Coach Miller; the first few weeks were spent in mastering the exercises, the 
last part being devoted to the form and snap. Incidental to the preparation 
for the tournament, the team gave several exhibitions; the first being given 
for the benefit of the Y. W. C. A. at the Stout circus, which consisted of 
work on the flying rings and trapeze, together with tumbling and pyramids. 
The second exhibition was given at a special assembly for Stout. High School, 
and the visiting basketball teams of the sectional tournament; this exhibition 
covered work in tumbling and on the parallel bars. The third exhibition was 
given between halves at the final game of the tournament in the Stout armory.

Menomonie. home of The Stout Institute, claims marked advantages 
from many viewpoints. Not only is it known throughout the country as a 
city of educational initiative, but it is commanding increasing attention for 
other excellent reasons. It is noted as a city of good homes; a city about 
which revolves the life of a rich, progressive and promising agricultural com- 
munity; the center of almost unlimited water power, developed and unde- 
veloped, a city which holds forth exceptional prospects to the manufacturer; 
favored with splendid transportation facilities, it invites the attenion of those 
interested in distribution; located upon the banks of the Red Cedar river and 
Lake Menomin. and surrounded by a beautiful country in which abound 
streams that are well stocked with fish, it is in the heart of a paradise for the 
disciples of Isaac Walton, while the fertile prairies and restful valleys within 
easy distance are a lure alike to the homeseeker and the tourist. 

Among the industries which support this thriving community agriculture 
must be accorded first position. Originally a part of a great timber district 
and the seat of the operations of the famous Knapp, Stout & Co., lumber 
manufacturers. Dunn county has gradually evolved into one of the richest 
farming areas in Northern Wisconsin. Dairying is the line of farming that

is most favored and a tour through the districts contiguous to Menomonie 
invariably surprises the traveler by the character of the farm homes which it 
reveals. According to the latest assessment the equalized property valuation 
in Dunn county is $47,823,270, the greater part of which is on the farms 
which have Menomonie as their trading center. 

The latest figures available show the value of the dairy products shipped 
from Dunn county to be $5,106,958.63 for one year. Wisconsin is known 
as the greatest dairy state in the Union and in that year Dunn county ranked 
fourth among the seventy-one counties in the state in the output of butter, 
producing 4,349,153 pounds, valued at $2,333,134.75. In Dunn county 
there are thirteen creameries, each contributing its share to the reputation 
Wisconsin butter enjoys for quality throughout the world. The combined 
output of the three creameries located in and near Menomonie. namely, those 
operated by the New Hudson Road. Rusk and Downsville Co-operative 
Creamery companies, in 1921 reached the enormous amount of 2.200,243 
pounds of butter. The cash receipts of these three plants for the year 
amounted, in round figures, to $900,000.00. The increase in the number of 
fine dairy cows accounted for the banner year in production, notwithstanding 
a general depression in business throughout the country which was so severe 
in the grain growing sections as almost to prostrate agricultural interests.

Because of the great number of pure-bred and high grade dairy cattle 
owned within a radius of eight miles of the city the John Wildi Evaporated 
Milk Company a few years ago selected Menomonie as the location of its 
newest, largest and finest milk condensary. This splendid plant was opened 
in the spring of 1917 at a cost of $250,000. It is now owned and operated 
by the Nestle's Food Company. Its success was instantaneous and it has be- 
come the market for an ever-widening territory with a capacity of 150,000 to 
200,000 pounds of fluid milk a day or a daily output of 1,500 to 2.000 
cases of the factory product, necessitating normally the employment of 150 
to 200 persons, no small industry of itself, to say nothing of the activity 
involved in producing the raw material. 

Many farmers are now interested in the raising of blooded cattle and 
the county has become famous for its pure-breds. Local breeders have been 
known to pay as high as $18,000 for one animal, brought here with the pur- 
pose of improving the stock of this vicinity. The breeds most favored are 
Holstein-Friesian, Guernsey, Jersey, Ayreshire, Durham, and Short Horn. 

While there has been a constant and consistent rise in the value of farm 
land about Menomonie the community is fortunate in that it has experienced 
no artificial inflation, such as has characterized the period following the war 
in some sections. Consequently the lands are not over-encumbered and 
there is room ahead for a healthy development without a set-back. While 
lands in the immediate vicinity of Menomonie bring a good price there are

many opportunities for investment with a prospect of discharging any reason- 
able indebtedness within a few years. 

Wisconsin as a whole in 1921 achieved the distinction of being one of 
the most prosperous states in the Union, and official records show that Dunn 
county has surpassed in material progress the average county of the state. 
This is well proved in the actual value of the land. In 1911 the average 
value of all land in Dunn county was $34.25 per acre. In 1921 the average 
for the county was $92.50 per acre. In 1911 the average for the entire state 
was $44.25 and in 1921 it was $83.00 an acre. 

There are other thriving industries in Menomonie closely linked with 
agricultural interests. One of these is the Wisconsin Milling Company, operat- 
ing a plant originally owned by Knapp. Stout & Co., but which has more 
than kept pace with the progress of the times in methods of operation and 
mechanical efficiency since the old lumber days. The Wisconsin Milling 
Company interests itself in the growing of the best quality of grains in the 
surrounding territory and gives every encouragement to maximum production 
per acre. It affords a fine home market for local grains, but this being a dairy 
country it does not depend upon local production for its supply but ships in 
large quantities of grain from western markets for its use. Its mill in Menom- 
onie is the third largest flour mill in Wisconsin, having a daily capacity of 600 
barrels. In addition to wheat flour it manufactures a full line of cereals as 
well as special dairy products and handles feeds, coarse grains and hay.

The company has capital stock of $175,000 and carries forty employes on 
its pay roll, which amounts to $40,000 annually. 

Another important local industry depending upon agriculture for its 
material is the Menomonie Milling Company. This Company manufactures 
high grade pearl barley and other barley products. During the late war it 
served a useful purpose for the government in the manufacture of substitutes 
as did also the Wisconsin Milling Company. The Menomonie Milling Com- 
pany has capital stock of $31,070 and an annual payroll of $13,000. Its 
daily capacity is 125 barrels. 

Underlying the western part of Menomonie and adjacent lands are 
vast beds of clay of the highest quality for the manufacture of building brick. 
Three large concerns are engaged in the manufacture of this product, namely 
the Hydraulic-Press Brick Company, a corporation which has many yards 
throughout the country with headquarters at St. Louis, Mo.; the Excelsior 
Brick Company and the Wisconsin Red Pressed Brick Company, both of 
which are owned by local capital. These companies have a combined capa- 
city of about 30,000,000 brick a year and employ upwards of 200 men at 
high wages. Menomonie brick have a reputation throughout the Northwest 
for quality and they are frequently called for in specifications for important

buildings in several states. It is believed that the local clays are suitable for 
other important products and excellent returns are promised to capitalists who 
may be interested in the manufacture of articles for which Menomonie clay 
beds would supply the raw material. 

The Holland Piano Manufacturing Company, of which George B. Norris 
of Minneapolis is president, has a highly successful factory in Menomonie 
which stands as a monument to the progressiveness of the business men of 
the city, inasmuch as the industry was located here through the activity of 
the Menomonie Commercial Club. Through the enterprise of present and 
former managements a large business has been developed, the factory now 
having a daily capacity of fifteen pianos. Only high grade pianos and 
player pianos are made here. The company has a capital stock of $200,000 
with an average annual payroll of $125,000. The normal working-force con- 
sists of 150 operatives. 

Another important industry is the cigar factory of Anderson Bros.. Inc. 
This company is capitalized at $40,000. has thirty-two employees and in 192 I 
manufactured approximately 2.000.000 cigars. Its plant is the largest cigar 
factory in the northern half of Wisconsin. Associated with this concern is 
the A. B. Leaf Tobacco Company, having a capital stock of $50,000. of 
which $31,000 is paid in. It started business in 1920 as packers of leaf 
tobacco with warehouses in Barron. Wisconsin. 

Unique among the industries of the city is the Litnum Bronze Company, 
manufacturing a special bronze, the composition of which is a secret. The

company has a fine factory which is now turning out acid-resisting valves for 
a corporation located elsewhere. It executes orders for bronze castings for 
other companies which require a metal of unusual strength. The company 
is capitalized at $1,000,000, of which $145,000 is paid in. Fifteen men are 
now employed. 

About the beginning of 1922 the Forster Foundry Company was incor- 
porated, taking over the business of the Aetna Engine works. This company 
is capitalized at $10,000, doing a general foundry and machine shop business 
which employs on an average eight skilled men. 

The Mcnomonie Dairy Company is operating under the management of 
H. J. Vigels in the manufacture of ice cream, besides doing a general dairy 
business. The output of ice cream manufactured amounts to about 50.000 
gallons a year. 

In addition to the above Menomonie is the home of two well-equipped 
printing offices, one of which issues The Dunn County News, the largest 
weekly newspaper published in Wisconsin, and a number of smaller industries. 

In retail lines Menomonie is acknowledged one of the best cities of its 
size in the state. Shoppers come here from many miles around, including 


1922 Stout Annual 


Masonic Temple and Home of Commercial Club 

the inhabitants of other cities and villages, being attracted by the complete, 
up-to-date and high-quality stocks of goods. The assessed value of the mer- 
chants' stocks is $706,289. One large department store alone carries a stock 
worth $150,000. 

Surrounded by so productive an agricultural area and with local business 
places in so flourishing a condition, it naturally follows that the banking 
business should make a splendid showing. And such is the case. There are 
four banks in the city, the First National, the Schutte & Quilling, the Bank of 
Menomonie and the Kraft State Bank. The capital, surplus and undivided 
profits of these institutions total the sum of $490,171.92. The deposits of 
the four banks aggregate $3,664,145.39. These are figures taken from the 
statement of January 12. 1922. 

Its proximity to the great railway gateways of St. Paul and Minneapolis 
and to the rail and water terminals at Superior and Duluth. together with its 
short haul from the mineral and timber districts of the Northwest, gives 
Menomonie unusua l, adv antages in obtaining raw materials as well as in 
getting its products to market. It is located on two great railway systems, 
the Chicago. St. Paul. Minneapolis and Omaha (comprising part of the 


1922 Stout ^Vanual 

Northwestern system) and the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, about sixty- 
seven miles east of St. Paul. The earnings at their stations here of these two 
roads are indicative of the vast volume of trade which centers at this point. 
The total amount of freight received in 1920 was approximately 203,000,000 
pounds, on which was paid about $268,000. The total amount of freight 
forwarded was about 150,000.000 pounds, on which was paid $271,300. 
The ticket sales of the two roads approximated $83,700 and miscellaneous 
earnings about $50,000. The combined earnings of these lines at Menomonie 
were therefore in round figures over $670,000 for the year. From business 
done thus far in 1922, the year promises to equal in activity that of 1920. 

Included in the transportation facilities of the city and county must be 
mentioned the improved highway system that is now being developed. Two 
federal aid trunk lines pass through the city, one known as No. 1 2, running 
east and west, and the other. No. 25, extending north and south. The former 
is the state's most direct and best highway connecting Chicago and the Twin 
Cities. The other forms part of the shortest route between southwestern 
Wisconsin and the cities at the head of Lake Superior. Another federal 
trunk line. No. 64, cuts across the northern part of Dunn county east and 
west. Besides these arteries of interurban traffic the county is developing 
a system of good roads with Menomonie as the center. 

The city of Menomonie is under the commission form of government, 
governmental affairs being in the hands of a mayor and two councilmen. How 
well the people are satisfied with this system was indicated in the fall of 
1920. when by an overwhelming vote the electors decided not to return to 
the old aldermanic form. The city has several miles of well paved streets, 
a fine White Way system in the business district, and many imposing public 
and private buildings which give the place a metropolitan aspect. Among 
the public buildings may be mentioned the commanding structures which 
form the home of The Stout Institute, a Federal Building, the Mabel Tainter 
Memorial, a beautiful stone edifice presented to the city about thirty years 
ago by the late Capt. Andrew Tainter, which contains a completely equipped 
theater, public library, rooms for the G. A. R. and W. R. C, amusement 
rooms, dining room, etc., available for public use; Masonic Temple, County 
Court House, City Hall, etc. 

The total assessed value of all property in the city is $6,290,228. The 
commission keeps taxes down to as low a point as is consistent with good 
service, the rate this year being about .027 on each dollar of assessed valua- 
tion. This rate is among the lowest known for cities of the same class in 

The city maintains a fine public hospital at which the charges are made 
as reasonable as possible. It owns several parks, in addition to which are 


IS'22 Stout Annual 

a beautiful parkway along the lake frontage and other pleasure grounds along 
the lake and streams, owned and controlled by the Menomonie Improvement 
Association, which are much enjoyed by residents, students and visitors in 
the summer months. 

The spiritual requirements of the community are provided for by eleven 
different churches, as follows: Congregational, Unitarian, Roman Catholic, 
Episcopal, Methodist Episcopal, German Methodist Episcopal, Baptist, two 
German Lutheran, Norwegian Lutheran and Evangelical Association, all of 
which have substantial church homes. Several have commodious parsonages. 
The pulpits are filled with men of ability and the auxiliary organizations reach 
out into the community life in a way to greatly extend the church influence. 

Surviving the war the Dunn County chapter of the Red Cross maintains 
at Menomonie an office from which is conducted an active and useful home 
service, including a system of help for service men in handling their prob- 
lems, a county visiting nurse, etc. There is maintained in the city an active 
and efficient charity organization, which features a visiting nurse service 
among its activities. A school nurse is regularly employed in connection 
with the public schools, so that, with the health and poor departments of the 
city government the needs of the population in these respects are well pro- 
vided for. 

Menomonie, by the last census, has a population of 5,104, but in appear- 
ance, enterprise and business activity it is ahead of most cities of that size. 

Its position as county seat of Dunn county makes it the official as well 
as geographical and commercial center of the county. A circumstance 
which illustrates the importance of the city in relation to the surrounding 
country is the fact that ten rural free delivery routes emanate from the 
Menomonie postoffice. a number larger than any other county seat in Wis- 
consin can boast. 

Representing the commercial, industrial, civic and social life of the 
community is the Menomonie Commercial club, an active body of about 250 
citizens whose endeavor is to make Menomonie a better city in the four lines 
indicated. The club is housed in the handsome Masonic Temple and its 
quarters are a convenient gathering place for many movements seeking the 
betterment of local conditions. The club is ever alert to welcome the new- 
comer and a function on which it prides itself is that of seeing that Menomonie 
is known as "the city of the square deal." 

As Menomonie's fame, however, rests most largely upon its wonderful 
educational facilities, a review of its school advantages will be of particular 


1922 Stout Annual 


Emerson said, "Every great institution is the lengthening shadow of a 
great man." The truth of Emerson's statement is well illustrated here in 
Menomonie. For it was from Senator Stout's position on the Board of Edu- 
cation of the Menomonie Public Schools that the shadow took shape and 
grew into the present Stout Institute. It was to the Public Schools that Senator 
Stout first turned his attention and it was in them that many of his progressive 
ideas were worked out. There is still reflected in the Public Schools much 
of the early progress which was developed when ideas new in educational 
thought were being put into practice here. 

The schools are organized along the lines suggested by the best modern 
practice into a senior high school, a junior high school, the intermediate 
and elementary grades and kindergarten. The senior high school comprises 
the 1 Oth, 1 1 th and 1 2th grades and has about 260 students. The junior 
high school comprises the 7th, 8th and 9th grades and has about 250 students. 

The courses of study in the senior and junior high school are organized 
around the five major fields of educational interest, namely: English, Foreign 
Languages, Science, History and Mathematics. In addition to these, voca- 
tional work, in manual training, home economics and commerce is also taught. 
Opportunity for work in music and the fine arts is also offered. The junior 
high school program is arranged to give the pupil a large number of com- 
paratively brief contacts with the field of education. In other words the 
junior high school proposes to give the students a sample of each subject that 
the senior high school has to offer. With this experience the student can 
enter the senior high school, knowing in a way his likes and dislikes, his spe- 
cial abilities, and with reasonable freedom of election select those lines of 
work which suit his interests best. Especial mention should be made of the 
exceptional opportunity for work along lines of manual training and home 
economics which is open to the high school students. All the facilities of 
Stout are available for this work, giving it a range and equipment far beyond 
that found in the average public school. 

As proof of the quality of the high school work we point to the fact that 
the high school is on the accredited list of the North Central Association of 
Colleges. This rating allows its graduates to enter without examination any 
college or university in the 1 8 states comprising the Association. 

The first six grades are housed in four buildings distributed over the 
city so that no child is far from a grade school. The usual grade program is 
carried out by the regular grade teachers, who, in each of the subjects of 
music, art and physical training, are assisted by a specially trained super- 
visor. The health of the children is carefully guarded by the schools. A 


1922 Stout .Annual 

graduate nurse is a regular member of the teaching force. She visits each 
room practically every day. Contagious diseases are detected promptly and 
epidemics prevented. Defects of eyes, ears, teeth, and throat are discovered 
and recommendation for correction made to the parent. Undernourished 
children are detected and with the approval of parents are given one feeding 
of milk each day at school. In Menomonie parents can send their children 
to school with confidence that their health will not be jeopardized; rather 
that under the careful supervision the child has a chance to grow not only 
mentally but physically. 

On the whole Menomonie Public Schools are a decided credit to the 
city. They could be better schools: in fact a virile public sentiment will 
make them better schools each year. The spirit of Senator Stout still lives 
in the hearts of the Menomonie citizens. And always their public schools 
will spell to their boys and girls the one big American word. Opportunity. 


In connection wit!» the general churchwork, the St. Paul's Lutheran 
congregation, consisting of 260 families, has considered its highest duty to 
impart a liberal education in a Christian spirit to the younger generation. For 
this purpose it has conducted for many years, a well organized parochial 
school of eight grades. It is the aim of the teachers to make the pupils 
entrusted to their care healthy-minded by developing originality and by teach- 
ing activity. To this end the mechanical idea is discarded to a certain extent, 
and the learner is given a clear understanding of the principles from which 
reason and judgment make the application and constitute the rule. 

The present school building was erected in 1 904. and it is a fine and 
very complete edifice. The teachers are normal graduates and have had 
many years' experience. 

As early as 1890 the members of St. Joseph's parish. Menomonie. had 
felt the necessity of providing for a parochial school which was to give ade- 
quate religious training as well as secular instruction to their children. The 
rather modest frame building on Ninth street, first used for school purposes, 
soon proved insufficient and a good brick school was put up in 1901. This 
in turn was found no longer to answer the needs of the growing parish 
and the year 1912 saw the erection of the new St. Joseph's School, facing 
Tenth Avenue. The parish school as it stands today is architecturally speak- 
ing, without doubt, one of the finest school buildings of the city. It is a solid 
brick structure, two stories high, and modern in every way. The four class 


1922 Stout .Annual 

rooms are fully equipped throughout. In addition to these, the building 
contains a beautiful chapel, a society room with kitchen attached, and a roomy 
basement with all modern facilities. Special attention has been paid to the 
fine heating and ventilating systems enjoyed by the school. 

The annual attendance varies between 1 10 and 125 pupils. For almost 
thirty years the members of the well known Teaching Community of the 
Franciscan Sisters of La Crosse have had charge of the school. 

While the system of education followed at St. Joseph's School aims at 
the symmetrical development of the religious and the moral sense together 
with the mental faculties of its pupils, every effort is being made to secure 
for them all-around, complete, well-balanced, up-to-date, elementary educa- 
tion. By harmonious and sympathetic co-operation, wherever possible, with 
the city schools, St. Joseph's School has been fortunate enough to make 
arrangements very beneficial to its pupils. A special feature of this plan 
consists in this that the children of the seventh and eighth grades spend one 
entire afternoon each week under the supervision of Stout practice teachers. 
The practical results achieved by the children in both manual training and 
domestic science have been particularly gratifying under this system of co-op- 
eration with Stout Institute. 

The present teaching force of St. Joseph's School consists of four teachers: 
namely. Sisters Julitta, Gerald. Maura, and Mericia; the pastor. Rev. A. J. 
Dorrenbach, of St. Joseph's church, acting as principal. 


This school is one of the thirty-one training schools of the state main- 
tained for the training of teachers for teaching positions in country schools. 
It fits young people, largely from the rural sections, for those positions graded 
and ungraded up to the principalship of state graded schools of the first 
class. Graduates of these schools are accepted after reasonable experience in 
all public schools where state certificates are not required. 

The Menomonie school was one of the first to be opened in September, 
1 899, being only a week younger than the oldest school of this type. Since 
its establishment it has graduated 655 teachers. The number of teachers 
in the country from these graduates usually run one hundred or more each 

It is equipped with a strong faculty of devoted teachers who are special- 
ists in the several lines of work laid out for them. In many cases special 
training and preparation having preceded appointment on the faculty. It is 


t922 Stout Annual 

well equipped with apparatus including a cameragraph for moving pictures 
and a stereopticon for lantern slides. 

It maintains three courses of study following two lines of work, one of 
which consists of academic mastery in the first two years of high school work 
and the review of the common branches to end of teaching them, while the 
other consists of professional reviews in connection with courses in pedagogy, 
observation of teaching and actual teaching for practice under expert super- 
vision and guidance. The course of three years admits boys and girls who 
have completed the first eight years of the state's course of study and who 
are at least fifteen years old; the course of two years admits boys and girls 
who have completed the ninth or tenth years; and. a one-year professional 
course for graduates of high schools. Upon completing any of these courses 
a certificate is issued to the graduate. It may be one of three grades, third. 
second, or first, depending upon the grade or quality of work done in the 
courses. These qualify for one. three, and five years respectively with re- 
newal plans without examination by meeting conditions for professional 
improvement during the life of any certificate. The first grade is practically 
a life certificate on the plan of renewal for five-year intervals. 

The school is housed in a special building situated in the midst of the 
Stout group. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, inviting the home spirit 
on every hand. The policy of the school is one calculated to invite growth 
on initiative, self-direction, and thoroughness to the ends of teaching. It is 
articulated with state normal school courses through a system of very favor- 
able credits so that students planning to continue work in state normals after 
teaching awhile can lose no time taking a course in this school. 

The school charges no tuition to residents of Dunn county and all of 
the books except a few of the fundamental texts are furnished free to home 

For further particulars, write. G. L. Bowman, Principal, Menomonie, 


This school is favorably located near the Stout Institute, the City High 
School, the County Training School, and the Memorial Library of the City 
of Menomonie. The aim of the school is to serve the country boys and girls, 
the farmers and those who are interested in agriculture and domestic economy. 
There is no tuition fee charged for residents of Dunn county and therefore 


1922 Stout .Anuual 

the school is free to them. Residents of other counties pay the same tuition 
as at regular four-year high schools. 

Several courses are offered. A four year course in agriculture for boys 
and a four year course in domestic economy for girls are given. Graduates 
from these courses may enter the Stout Institute, the University of Wisconsin, 
Normal Schools, and colleges. Two year courses in agriculture and domestic 
economy, and short courses of four months each for two winters are given 
to boys and girls. In addition special courses in testing milk, feeds and 
feeding poultry, gardening, gas engines and automobiles may be taken by 
anyone who wishes to enter. High school graduates may take a one year 
course in agriculture or domestic economy. Seventy-eight students are en- 
rolled in the regular courses this year. Among these are five soldiers, three 
of them being married men. 

Besides the regular school work a great deal of extension work is done 
by the faculty. One member of the teaching force holds two weeks' courses 
in agriculture in different parts of the county for farmers and their families 
during the winter months. In summer he organizes clubs, in calf, pig, poul- 
try, bee. corn, potato, canning, and grain projects, and works on the farms 
with the young people. 

Other lines of extension work are testing milk and cream, testing soils, 
organizing cow testing associations, pure bred stock and grain associations, 
soil improvement associations, tile drainage work, aiding in selling and buying 
pure bred stock and seeds, culling poultry flocks, testing seeds for germina- 
tion and purity, testing soils and giving the amount of lime required. In 
addition to this work many circulars are sent to the farmers and more than 
two thousand letters of information are sent in answering letters for infor- 
mation on farm subjects. 


Menomonie also has besides her county, public, and parochial schools. 
The Stout Institute. This institution represents an investment of over 
$1,000,000 for buildings and equipment. It is a state institution devoted 
entirely to the preparation of teachers of Household and Industrial Arts. Its 
graduates have taught in nearly every state in the Union, in Porto Rico, and 

The school had its inception in September. 1890, when the late Senator 
J. H. Stout in an arrangement with the school board agreed to build a 
Manual Training building where the present Industrial Arts building now 


1922 Stout Annual 

stands. In 1897 the school buildings were destroyed by fire. New ones were 
immediately built. 

In 1908 the school was incorporated and became The Stout Institute. 
After Mr. Stout's death the property was taken over by the state. There 
are now four buildings in the group; the Industrial Arts building. Trades 
building. Household Arts building, and the Gymnasium and Natatorium 
Besides these, there are two dormitories for girls, a practice Homemakers' 
cottage, and an infirmary. 

In addition to the above buildings the Stout Home with its beautiful 
grounds, some twenty acres in extent, was presented early in 1922 to the 
State for use by Stout Institute as a dormitory for the women students and 
teachers. This gift was made by Mrs. Angeline W. Stout. 

The Stout Institute offers 2-year and 4-year courses in both departments. 
In the 4-year course graduates receive the degree of B. S. in Industrial or 
Household Arts. Craduates of the 2-year course receive the diploma which 
is made the basis for the issuance of a life certificate to teach following two 
years of successful teaching. 

The enrollment of The Stout Institute has increased rapidly following 
the war period and beginning with the summer session of 1921 it has operated 
on a 45-week year. With the usual holiday vacation and a short recess be- 
tween the regular and summer sessions this virtually keeps the school open the 
entire year. The school year now considered as being 45 weeks is made up 
of 5 9-week terms, one of which is the summer session. In the latter certain 
courses are operated on a semester basis to enable students to earn semester 
credit in certain courses when here only for the summer.
